“We believe that electric bikes are the future. Letting more people get out onto two wheels, getting people out of traffic jams causing less pollution, and helping friends and families spend more time together.”

The Electric Bike shop

Why did you sign the Pledge?

We’ve been selling electric bikes for six years. We believe that electric bikes are the future. Letting more people get out onto two wheels, getting people out of traffic jams causing less pollution, and helping friends and families spend more time together are just some of the benefits that became the driving force behind The Electric Bike Shop.

What changes are you making within your business?

Electric bikes are bicycles with a battery-powered motor attached. When you pedal, the motor gives you assistance, making hills easier, helping you in stop-start traffic, and reducing the strain

In all our stores, we prefer to recycle and reuse rather than buy new. For example, our new Brentwood store has kept all the original aesthetics with just a refreshing coat of paint. As we have just moved into our new premises, we will be installing LED lighting to replace the high-cost Halogen lighting currently in situ. The savings alone will pay for the lights in about two years. This will help us with the cost of running the shop and assist in reducing our carbon footprint.

We’re part of several Cycle to Work schemes, such as Green Commute, Cycle Solutions, Bike to Work Scheme and My Benefits World, these schemes are government backed incentives. These enable employers to add to the staff benefits they offer their employees. These schemes in turn allow them to purchase a bike with a great tax saving of between 30% and 42%. We encourage you to ask your employer which scheme they are with if you’re interested in a new bike. If you would like to talk to one of our team, pop into the store at 63 High Street Brentwood and they’ll be happy to help.

We stock E-Bikes from Babboe, Cube, Eovlt, GoCycle, Haibike, Lapierre, Moustache, Raleigh and Tern, covering all uses from leisure and commuting to off road mountain biking.
